It’s fascinating, to me, how easy it is to follow the herd mentality – to accept a predestined path of settling.
We settle for the tried and true path of the Herd Mentality; which settles for surviving versus thriving, because society overwhelmingly believes balance is impossible.
So we medicate, entertain, and distract ourselves.
Thriving is best left to the lucky ones.
